Internet Access in Jamestown, Rhode Island

Viasat Internet has the most coverage in Jamestown. HughesNet is also widely available.

In terms of network technologies offered around the city, we see that the most common hardwired broadband Internet tech infrastructures are Cable (virtually one hundred percent coverage) and 5G Internet (38.43 percent coverage). Cable is sold by former residential television providers, leveraging their already-built coaxial cable TV networks. Cable can often make sense for local residents because of the strong mix of speed and value.

As of recent government reports, 4.87 percent of Jamestown residents are limited to only one choice for wired Internet service, or in some rare cases none.

Cox Communications provides a common second choice, serving Jamestown with near one hundred percent availability and a maximum speed of 1,000 Mbps.

The broadband coverage stats here and elsewhere on BroadbandNow are calculated from a mix of government data from the FCC and privatized data we source directly from providers, or via private sources. Average statistics regarding speed data comes primarily from M-Labs, the speed test tool integrated into BroadbandNow as well as Google and Chrome search results. Our research team has manually collected package pricing and plan details on 191 Internet plans in Jamestown as of 2022.
